A 'complete' word is a word in which every letter, in turn, can be replaced by another to form a new word.
For example, SEND is a complete word because:
Starting with SEND we can replace the S with an L to make LEND
Starting with SEND we can replace the E with an A to make SAND
Starting with SEND we can replace the N with an E to make SEED
Starting with SEND we can replace the D with a T to make SENT.
Which 2 of the following words are not complete words? Proper nouns (i.e. people's names) are not allowed.

As an example, the letters of HARD can be changed, in turn, to give CARD, HERD, HAND, HARP.
BUGS and LEAN.
The remaining 8 words can be changed as follows:
HARD >> CARD, HERD, HAND, HARP
PORT >> FORT, PART, POET, PORE
DUCK >> MUCK, DECK, DUSK, DUCT
BAIL >> HAIL, BOIL, BAWL, BAIT
MAST >> CAST, MOST, MALT, MASK
THIN >> SHIN, TWIN, THAN, THIS
FIRE >> HIRE, FARE, FIVE, FIRM
READ >> BEAD, ROAD, REED, REAL
You have to be able to change EVERY letter to make a new word, so from BUGS you can change B to make HUGS, the U to make BAGS, and the G to make BUYS, but you can't change the S to make a new word.
